The MakeHer Space (MHS) Project is a partnership project with Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre – Lagos that brings together young girls and their facilitators to learn and be inspired through simple tech builds, which they leverage for solving everyday problems in technology hubs. The project seeks to close the existing gender gaps in the Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math (STEAM) related fields, and places a sharp focus on inspiring young women and girls between the ages of 10–25 years, in-school and out-of-school.
